The young Dutchman is currently playing for FC Twente in the Eredivisie and impressing many clubs around Europe, including those at Anfield and White Hart Lane.

Spanish side Sevilla are also reported to be closely monitoring the Netherlands Under-21 international, but Kenny Dalglish is keen to add him to his plethora of young stars.

Ola, younger brother of former Fulham striker Collins, has rose to prominence in the past 18 months since making his debut.

It was reported that the tricky winger turned down moves to both Manchester United and Arsenal last summer.

John also extended his Twente contract until 2014 after taking advice form older bother Collins, who moved to Fulham in 2004.
